Mild Build

Well, thought I might document my build.
Parts are on order, so it should be updated fairly regularly.
Started with 08 F350, 260000km. Got a good deal on the truck but knew it needed some work. Lots of smoke, blow by and oil consumption.
Tore it apart and broken rings on #2, #3 and #5 cylinders.
Heads look good, sent them out for some re/re work and the block is at the machine shop getting ready for some 0.030" over de-lipped OEM pistons.
Will update as the parts arrive and I begin to assemble
Goal is a nice reliable DD truck I can stomp on once in a while.

Cheers

Since reliability is your goal, I will skip the go fast parts. You might want to consider doing a thermal coating on the pistons. If you aren't deleted, I would definitely do that. Finally, I would at least do some 6.0 exh mannies and some upgraded up pipes.

I don't see the need in coating the pistons with them being de-lipped but that's just my opinion

Thinking about getting rid of the stock 6.7 turbo?
Check this out... and research before buying

Look at a pic of the factory pistons. The top of the piston has a smaller hole than the bowl of the piston. The metal on the top of the piston that hangs over the bowl is the lip. The metal there is thin with a pointed edge so it collects heat. That is where a lot of pistons start to crack.

Overall the de-lipping looks good. There is a very slight ridge on a few about halfway down the wall that I think I will polish up before install. Still have a few days before the machine shop is done with the block. Aiming for 0.0025" piston to cylinder wall clearance. Ford spec is 0.0018" - 0.0037"
